International Falls water is named 'best in glass'

DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — International Falls can now brag that its water is "Best in Glass."

Drinking water from the city known as "the Nation's Icebox" was judged the best-tasting in Minnesota Wednesday. The contest was held at the annual convention of the Minnesota chapter of the American Water Works Association in Duluth.

Conference attendees voted International Falls, St. Cloud and East Grand Forks as the top three contenders. A panel of taste testing experts then named International Falls the winner.

The winning city takes home a trophy and wall plaque. It's the first win for International Falls. Last year, St. Cloud Public Utilities took home the Best in Glass trophy. Moorhead Public Service won it in 2009 and 2010.
